    sl7832 doesn't recognize weight of water to do two cups, only one, no matter how much water I put in. I've descaled several times to no avail. Senseo is unresponsive to my needs

SOURCE: descaling

Just use vinegar. Fill the reservoir with white vinegar, put a pot or big bowl under the spout, get ready as if you were going to brew and then press BOTH the one cup and two cup buttons together.

Run the vinegar through again when it's done, and then run clean (filtered, preferably) water through twice. You're done.

Senseo is not putting out the water


There is a possibility it just needs more water or it could be 'furred up' because it has not been purged or descaled for a long time. Fill up with water and place a large jug '500ml min' under and press both the single and two cup buttons at the same time. Refer to the user manual for the type of descaler to use.

Need a descaler


instractions are from manual HD7810/00

Use the correct descaling agent
Only citric acid-based descalers are suitable for descaling the SENSEO
machine. This
type of descaler descales the machine without damaging it. For the correct amount,
see under 'Descaling procedure' below. Each descaling mixture can be used only once.
After use, the descaling mixture is no longer active.
We advise you to use the special SENSEO
Descaler (HD7012/HD7011/HD7006).
Read the instructions on the package of the descaling agent.
Never use a descaling agent based on mineral acids such as sulphuric acid,
hydrochloric acid, sulphamic acid and acetic acid (e.g. vinegar). These descaling
agents may damage your SENSEO

coffee machine.
Descaling procedure
1 Mix 50 grams of citric acid with 1 litre of water in a measuring jug. Stir until
the powder is completely dissolved.
2 Fill the water reservoir up to the MAX indication with the descaler mixture.
Then put the water reservoir back into the coffee machine. (Fig. 3)
Note: Not all SENSEO
machine types have a water reservoir with a capacity of
1 litre. If you have a SENSEO

machine with a smaller water reservoir, repeat steps
2 to 6 with the remainder of the mixture without filling the water reservoir up to
the MAX indication.
3 Press on/off button 3. (Fig. 10)
The machine is ready for use when the indicator light lights up continuously.
4 Place the 1-cup holder h with a used coffee pod in it in the coffee machine.
Close the lid and make sure it is properly locked.
Note: Always put a used coffee pod in the pod holder when you descale the
machine. This pod serves as a 'filter' to prevent the sieve or hole in the pod holder
from getting clogged with scale residue.
5 Put a bowl with a capacity of at least 1500ml under the spout to collect the
descaling mixture (Fig. 8).
6 Press the 2-cup button hhand let the machine operate. Repeat this until
the water reservoir is empty. (Fig. 25)
Never interrupt the descaling process!
7 Repeat steps 1 to 6. Replace the used pod with another used pod to filter out
the scale residue.
Note: To descale properly, you have to use 2 litres of descaling mixture.
Never descale the SENSEO
coffee machine with the lid open. Make sure the lid is
properly locked.
8 Rinse the water reservoir with tap water. Fill the water reservoir up to the
MAX indication with tap water and repeat steps 3 to 6.
Note: Do not refill the water reservoir with used hot water or the used descaling
mixture.
9 Fill the water reservoir with fresh tap water up to the MAX indication again
and repeat steps 3 to 6 once more.
Note: Always rinse the machine by letting it empty two full water reservoirs.
10 Remove the used pad and clean the pod holder after descaling to prevent the
sieve or hole in the centre from getting clogged.

My Phillips Senseo only produces a small amount of water why?.


Hi Have you tried to clean and de-scale it, limescale can really play havoc with these sort of devices. If you still have the instruction book give it a read and follow instructions for de-scaleing. Also there is a cleaning cycle on some of the models which just flushes the senseo through to clear it out again it is in the book but if I remember rightly you fill up the resoviour then turn it on and put a large bowl under the spout and press both the one and two cup buttons at once. But I would do a descale phillips say it should be done about every 3 months this should also clean out any other muck that has built up, they also say to clean out the pod holder including the little hole. The Phillips website has help if you have lost the booklet.

HI so do I.
But I am afraid we will have to keep buying it. Because the coffee machines have to be clean.

Coffee is watery. Not sure if its the maker or the new senseo pods. I recently used white vinegar solution to descale and since the coffee is terrible ... very watery. Is it because of the descaling,...


Hi. Who says to use vinegar. I wouldn't use that. Sounds like your pump is not pumping at right pressure. Vinegar can make the lime/calcium build up, break up into too large of pieces. which can block the pump. Descale solution breaks these deposits up. allowing it to be flushed from the system.

Decreased output from Senseo


I'm thinking it needs to be "Descaled" Heres info from Senseo.com:

Does my Senseo® appliance need to be descaled? Yes. Descaling is an important element in Senseo maintenance. It should be done at least once every three months, up to six times a year!

Keeping your Senseo free of scale will:
  • Ensure you have maximum cup volume
  • Ensure you have maximum coffee temperature
  • Make your Senseo produce less sound while brewing
  • Prevent your Senseo from malfunctioning
  • Prolong your Senseo's life.
The descaling process takes about one hour and should not be interrupted. Only a descaling agent based on citric acid can be used safely in the Senseo. Other agents, including vinegar, may damage your appliance or not remove the scale entirely. If the procedure is not performed correctly, scale residue may remain in the machine. This causes scale to build up more quickly and may cause permanent and irreparable damage to the machine.

For the right procedure to descale your type of Senseo, see attached document.
